Grand Jury indicts man accused in East Point kidnappings, assaults

A Fulton County grand jury has indicted a man accused of sexually assaulting three women he allegedly kidnapped in East Point.

During a four-day period in September, Terry Young, 20, allegedly robbed and assaulted the women, who lived in the same townhouse complex, according to police.

On Sept. 4, a teacher was carjacked, pistol-whipped and assaulted before being forced to drive to an ATM, according to police. The woman was able to jump from the moving vehicle and run to safety.

Then, four days later, two more women were the victims of similar crimes, police said.

The two women said they were returning home together Sept. 8 around 10 p.m. when a gunman approached them in the parking lot of their complex on Washington Road, got into the back seat of their vehicle and forced them to drive to an ATM along Camp Creek Parkway, according to police. The gunman then made the women drive back to the complex, where he raped both of them, police said.
